Sister Wives: Kody Brown Calls Christine’s Bluff with Zinger You Don’t Expect

Sister Wives star Kody Brown looks like he’s at his wit’s end with Christine Brown‘s negativity as he suddenly becomes assertive in the next episode. It’s unusual for the Sister Wives patriarch to point his wives to the door if they disagree with him. But there’s a first time for everything and there’s always the magic of TLC editing to consider as well.

Sister Wives: Is Kody Brown Pushed To His Limit?

It looks like Kody Brown calls Christine’s bluff on the next Sister Wives episode. But what you see on the screen might not really happen that way.

TLC’s editing already came into question last week by Christine herself. The network seems to spin dramatic scenes in previews. But when the Sister Wives scene plays out in full, you find a toned-down version of the preview hype. The same goes for scenes in the episodes.

It seems TLC knows how a little nip and tuck with an edit offers a facelift to the drama. It also looks like they’ve taken the liberty to provide a digital facelift from time to time. So when the Sister Wives episodes air, it shows something a little bit different than the way it originally played out.

Last week Christine Brown took issue with the Sister Wives edit process. She claims they made her look “bratty” when she dealt with Kody in the last episode. In the new episode of Sister Wives, Kody Brown throws out what sounds like a zinger to Christine Brown. He does this after it looks like her complaints pile up over his one big family home.

Sister Wives: Christine Brown - Kody Brown

in the next episode, Kody Brown gathers his four wives once again in front of the TV screen. He’s ready to offer an encore presentation of the Sister Wives big house. But this time just the five adults form a circle around Kody and his presentation.

Christine Brown’s Feathers Ruffled By Shared-Husband?

Christine Brown offers an adamant “no,” about living in one home together. But she pushes Kody’s buttons when she won’t even listen to what her Sister Wives shared-husband has to say.

The third wife of Kody Brown takes a stand. She suggests there’s no need to talk about the house when she refuses to live in it. Not only is Christine Brown tired of this house presentation, but the fans’ comments also suggest they too want it to move along.

It’s at this point that Kody Brown offers the realization to Christine Brown that she is part of a family. He also suggests there might come a time when one of the wives don’t want to be part of the family anymore. Maybe they can buy that wife out, he suggests. Did Kody just tell her in so many words – if you don’t like it there’s the door?

Kody’s reaction seems really out of the norm and certainly not what most fans would expect from the Sister Wives celeb. But it also looks like Christine was stunned with his seriousness as well. He then continues to describe what would happen in the case of his death. He wanted each wife to have their own assets.

Perhaps the Sister Wives’ shared husband decided to backpedal a bit once he saw his wives expressions. Maybe he attempted to make his gesture to Christine Brown a little bit more generic sounding. Or… maybe it was TLC editing taking something Kody said out of context to give the show a touch of drama that didn’t play out on its own.

Sister Wives: Is This Editing Or Kody Making a Stand?

Usually, Kody Brown goes away with his tail between his legs sulking when his wives disagree with him. So this just might be the handi-work of Sister Wives editing. In a recent episode, Kody demonstrated self-pity about the lack of enthusiasm over his shared-house. He’s also felt sorry for himself over the financial mess they are in.

When Kody came out with his statement about choosing to be a part of this family or not, Christine looked uncomfortable. But again, is this what really happened. While it happens on the screen, does the Sister Wives episode show all that went on with that conversation. Or do fans only get bits and pieces that lead to some serious assumptions?

Kody Brown did say he thought about buying out the share of a wife who might want to leave one day. Of course, Christine never made a reference to leaving her Sister Wives family.

The bottom line is Christine Brown’s negativity might push Kody to the limits on this week’s episode. Or… it’s possible TLC took liberties with editing to make it appear that way.

New episodes of Sister Wives roll out Sunday nights at 10 pm on TLC.
